According to Talia Goodman of The Next, former LSU point guard Hailey Van Lith, 22, is transferring to TCU for the 2024-25 season.

Van Lith spent the first three years of her college career at Louisville, where the 5-foot-7 guard was a two-time first-team All-ACC selection over three years. She then headed to LSU after the Tigers’ national championship in April 2023.  In her time with LSU, Van Lith averaged 11.6 points and 3.6 assists per game in her only season with the Tigers (per ESPN).  Van Lith now joins the Horned Frogs for her final season of college eligibility; she entered the transfer portal on April 4, just three days after LSU lost to Iowa in the Elite Eight; she has one year of eligibility left.

Van Lith’s former coach at LSU, Kim Mulkey, shared of her former player (via NOLA.com): “her aspirations were to get drafted this year, and she realized, ‘I need another year, and I need to go back to a place where I can relax and get back to my normal position.’ .. She wanted to improve her strengths by coming to LSU with a goal of expanding her game by learning a position that I played my entire life, because she knows at the next level that’s her only chance – to be able to tell them somewhat, ‘I can handle the ball if you need me to.’” Mulkey also expressed support for Van Lith, stating: “Hailey Van Lith is one of the hardest working players that I’ve ever coached.”
